Four-day work weeks are viable

Companies and managers arguing that 4-day work weeks result in less productivity need to read this:

The productivity improvements that we need in order to make a four-day week work already exist, it’s just that they are buried under this rubble of poor management and outmoded processes, and a culture that values time in the office over focus and attention. The average worker loses between two and four productive hours every day due to overly long meetings, technology-driven distractions, and interruptions by colleagues.

When you’re in the flow, you get stuff done faster. It’s as simple as that.

Deep work makes it possible to get into that state of flow.

Reduce unnecessary meetings and turn off Slack notifications. And voilà, a 4-day work doesn’t seem unreal anymore.
